Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

All About Arm Lifts (Brachioplasty)

An arm lift, or brachioplasty, can be used to help remove excess skin and fat that may hang below the underside of the upper arms. Sometimes referred to as “tuck shop lady” arms, this excess skin can be removed to help reduce the signs of ageing and tighten sagging skin that may occur during pregnancy or as a result of weight loss.


We have worked hard to be able to offer an affordable price so patients do feel pressured to visit under qualified practices or destination surgery. Our arm lift surgery includes surgeons fee, hospital fee, and general anaesthetic costs.

What’s Involved?

Arm lifts can be performed under general anaesthesia.

Arm lifts are performed by surgically removing and trimming the sagging skin hanging on the underside of the upper area of the arm, with the surgeon positioning the incisions made so that they run in a line from the elbow to the armpit, hiding the scar against the body.

What are the risks?

After surgery you may experience pain and discomfort. There is also a chance that bleeding might occur at the site of the procedure. It is important to note that the arm is an area of the body that can sometimes heal unpredictably, and this can result in some feelings of numbness, tightness or residual scarring in some cases.

If you are concerned about possible complications, be sure to discuss them with your surgeon.
